Audio voices are going strange after a period of time. Also optical audio ports have no doors. Hi everyone. I just have purchased two Sonos Playbars and subs from Jb Hi Fi. Neither play bars have a door on the optical audio ports? I have only been currently using 1 unit, but I just opened the other unused unit to check it. Also, after watching a film on Apple TV, after some time the voices go extremely weird, like scrambled. I fixed this by unplugging and plugging back in the HDMI port on the Apple TV. This issue also happened on Foxtel yesterday. I am using a third party 'better quality' optical audio cable at the moment.
Tried all options but it doesn't work. Suggestions given on this thread are not applicable as those options don't show up on my TV: [url=http://forums.sonos.com/showthread.php?t=37555]http://forums.sonos.com/showthread.php?t=37555[/url].. Very frustrating :(
So after some research it seems like if you have a few options if you plan to use a projector with sonos. I just want to make sure I understand the options. It seems like this is a popular question and hopefully this can be a good summary to the question. (sorry for the poor use of terms here, I am no A/V expert). [list=1][*]The best case would be to have an Optical Audio out from the projector. You then connect your "data output device" i.e. tv box aka Sky, comcast, ATT, dvd player etc, to the projector. Then you run an toslink (optical audio cable) from the projector to the playbar (yes this requires a long cable) to the front of the room. With this setup there is no delay in audio (lipsync effect)[*]If your projector does not have an optical Out then but your "data output device" does then you can run the optical cable from the "data output device" to the playbar. This may actually reduce your cord length if you keep this device at the front of the room. If I understand corre
Using AEON-45200 Universal Cantilever Mount, with AEON-90200 Sound Bar Bracket to attach Sonos Playbar. AEON instructions (yes I admit to reading instructions) state to attach sound bar to bracket with screws provided by sound bar manufacturer. There were no screws with PlayBar and it appears that the PlayBar backs not designed for screws. ++ Do I need to purchase the Playbar Wall Mount Kit tp attach PlayBar to Aeon sound bar bracket ? ++ Thanks Joe
I too have be having the issue of my older TV not passing Dolby Digital 5.1 to my Playbar. For reference I have the following components: Sources: Dish receiver VIP622 PlayStation 3 Apple TV (2nd Gen) Wii Connection to the TV, in order: Source from above Kinivo 501BN 5 port HDMI switch Monoprice HDBaseT wall plate extender TV: LG 60PC1D With the above setup I was not able to get a DD5.1 signal to the Playbar using any of the sources, but when using the internal tuner in the TV the digital signal was passed to the TV. Just like many other people on this forum I have found this to be really frustrating but I feel that I have finally found a solution. I added the following box just before the HDMI input into the TV. From Amazon: ViewHD Premium HDMI to HDMI + Audio (SPDIF + RAC L/R) Audio Extractor This box essentially has an HDMI in and HDMI out along with an optical output. On the side of the box there is a switch that allows you to configure the
Hi could anyone help me with choosing a good optical switch to work with my playbar as so i can get the best out of my sky box,ps4,xbox one and apple tv as i believe I'm not getting the best out of my sons set up(playbar,sub,2xplay 1s)when the optical is connected to my tv and not the actual devices themselves. any ideas would be great.
I am currently buying the necessary components for a Surround System using SONOS. The plan so far is: 1. Sonos PLAYBAR 2. Sonos SUB 3. Connect:AMP to two in ceiling Paradigm PV-60R I am also purchasing a boost, though may end-up not requiring it. Documentation suggests that for my stated set-up I need to have a wired connection to both the Playbar and the Connect:AMP? Is this accurate and still the case if I use a boost? If yes, then i will return the boost as it is not necessary. Thanks
I would absolutely love to purchase a set up for my home theater based around the SONOS Playbar. I have one SONOS play 3 now and love it. However, the lack of support for a feature/technology that seems to be present on not only my current TV, but many of newer TVs I have looked at recently absolutely baffles me. For me, this support is a show stopper. I am looking to purchase my new home theater equipment by the end of 2015. Ideally any new functionality would also include support for 7.1 surround sound using additional Play 1 or Play 3's. Hopefully this support can be added by then, or I'll be looking to implement another solution for my home theater, and later whole home audio set up. I really hope SONOS is paying attention, I have seen numerous posts on here from other customers and dealers with very scant and shallow replies from SONOS. It really makes me hesitant to purchase SONOS products when I get the feeling that the company seems content to not be
I already spoke with Sonos support so I know it is not currently possible, but how would I go about requesting the following functionality be added? Currently I have a Playbar + two speakers in the rear of the room controlled by a Connect:AMP. If I set up the rear speakers as surrounds, I can control the 3 speakers with the TV remote but they will only work as surrounds in TV mode and I would like them to work in stereo (playing the same content as the playbar). I see that someone had requested the ability of these surrounds to play in stereo mode for music and that functionality has now been added to the software; playing the surrounds in "Full" mode instead of "Ambient", but that only applies to music and not TV. The other option of course is to use the rear speakers as a separate zone and group them with the Playbar. This gives me the effect I want (all stereo), but then the TV remote only controls the Playbar, and I have to use my phone to adjust the volume in the rea
I just bought a Playbar and have set it up with two Play1s (no sub). I've connected it to the TV and have it up and running. When I play something from Spotify the sound would blow you out of the room however when you play from the TV the sound isn't as good at all. In fact I'd go as far as to say that the volume from the TV is probably louder. I've a Samsung H6400.
My question is similar to several other topics related to using Sonos speakers and other amplifiers, but those threads are several months to as long as a year old. I’m hoping for an updated answer. I plan to purchase a Playbar and other Sonos wireless speakers to create 5:1 audio for TV viewing and additional wireless speakers for other rooms in the house. I also would like music from my CD player and/or AM/FM receiver to play through the Sonos speaker system instead of using my externally wired speakers. The CD player is currently connected to the amplifier in the receiver, so all current audio sources (except for the TV) are output from the amplifier to the hardwired speakers. Every thing I’ve read describes connecting a Line Out from the Sonos Connect to a Line In on an amplifier, but wouldn’t I need to come OUT of the receiver and IN to the Connect so the source can be sent to the wireless speakers? Thanks.
I have my PlayBar mounted on the wall below my TV and I am trying to eliminate seeing the IR blaster wire by using the TOP IR sensor. Is the top IR sensor disabled on the play bar? It will not accept any codes from an IR blaster or a remote control, Just the IR receiver facing me when looking at the bar will except codes.
I am planning on buying a Playbar, Sub and 2 Play:3's, mainly for use as 5.1 hometheatersystem. I also want to connect my Pioneer DDJ-Ergo-K dj-controller, to the SonosNet, in order to be able to hear my mix trough all Sonosspeakers. How can i do this? I already know that Sonos has the Connect and Connect:Amp, which have an analog input that i can use. If this is really the way to do it, do i use the Connect or the Connect:Amp? I do have 1 doubt; i have found on the internet that when i connect a mixer to the Connect (:Amp), there might be a slight delay. (The music in the headphones is not in sync with the music played trough the speakers, which is not acceptable when mixing). If there will be a delay, i could use a receiver: Connecting the Pioneer dj-controller to the analog input of the receiver, then connecting the receiver with HDMI to my tv, which has the Playbar connected on it. The Playbar will send the music to the other Sonosspeakers. Is this a possible solution to the proble
Hi, I am trying to add 2x Play 1 speakers as surround speakers to a playbar. I already have a sub connected. When I try to add the second speaker, it initially recognises it when I push the buttons on top, but fails to set it up and gives me a message saying "Surround Setup Error. There was a problem adding the surround speaker. Please ensure the surround speaker and the PLAYBAR are connected to power." Can you advise what I should do please? I have tried removing and re-adding the surround speakers, but experience the same problem each time. The room setting says "(+SUB+LS+?)"
I don't know if its already ben asked, but could a 'silent' setting be added to the music playback section for surrounds in the room settings? so when 2 channel music is selected to be played they don't receive any signal, then when TV is selected they perform as normal? The full range setting just sounds wrong to my ears, and the ambient setting makes the music sound far too processed I know you can turn them off, but its a real faff to go into the menus, turn them off, then when you go back to surround, turn them back on. a simple one time selection then not have to mess around would be ideal, IMO.
I have a new LG 4K TV with the magic remote. Can you please explain how to get the magic remote to operate the playbar and sub volumes and mute etc. Sonos is not even listed as a manufacturer in the LG's list of external devices (& believe me they appear to list everyone else). What's is going on here Sonos? This is really annoying and frustrating. And please don't even think about suggesting a Universal remote as an option.
